Hook-up wire (1000V 1.8A solid) PVC
No stranded wires = no wire whiskers and easier wiring
This is a small gauge, solid core hook-up wire in multiple colours for wiring up your amplifier projects. All colours have the same ratings and physical dimensions. Some amp builders have a love/hate thing with solid-core wire. Me, too – my first builds were with this wire and I liked that you could get perfect 90-degree bends, and very tight twists. This wire is perfect – and by far the most suitable – for wiring up the small miniature toggle switches. There are no strands to worry about and with a single solid wire, soldering to lugs is a lot easier and quicker. That minimises the risk of damaging the switch through prolonged heat.
Dimensions & info
The cable’s overall diameter – including the insulation – is 1.2mm. The wire is solid (one single strand). The insulation is PVC. Rated at 1000V and 1.8A, it’s suitable for use throughout the whole circuit for most 1-10W amp designs. The price below is a per-metre figure (for North American customers, 1 metre is just over 3ft).
Note: (April 2022: the Russian invasion of Ukraine and the sanctions have disrupted the global supply of valves. Therefore, only the version without valves is available until further notice.).
